Blue Beacon Truck Wash-
It is a nationwide chain usually behind a truck stop such as Petro.

I am planning to hit the Blue Beacon in Jackson, MS on the way to Canopener-
I may get brave and get on the roof and clean it.

We ordered that Delonghi heater based on your recommendation...how is it working?
Based on their specs maybe our airstream is too small?
Help!

Rivet Rivets

Finally got around to replacing the three panels I ordered this spring. Oh, what fun it is. Took me 2 weekends, 3 tubes of Vulkem and 250 rivets to do all three.

REALLY!? I thought it was like $3 a foot. How good a job do they do....that's hardly worth doing it yourself.

They missed some spots on the curved areas at the top. I will get it done again at a different Blue Beacon in a couple of weeks. I just really don't have the time or energy to do it myself.
I am glad it is not $3 a foot- that would be $90!
I think they do consider the length because sometimes they ask how long it is.
There is a chart they go by.
I have taken 16' and 24' cargo trailers towed by a Chevy Express van through the truck wash.

Amazon and Home Despot claimed more of my cash, as I added a Makita Big Bore MAC2400air compressor, Ingersoll Rand accessory kit, and some Camco RV blow out adaptors to aid in winterization and tire duties.

I stressed a bit on the choice of compressor. Don't have room for a large 10plus gallon model, nor was I thrilled with the noise and recharge times of the Porter Cable pancakes. The Makita got good reviews and was quieter, but twice the heft of the pancake models. At high CFM and quick recharge times, I am hoping it is not limiting for winterization because the 4.2 gallon dual tank capacity.

A bit pricey compared to cheaper options, but for tools I have a "Cry once" rule that's never disappointed.
